Hi Greg,

I have never seen a Common Tern perched on a powerline but on 29 January 2011 Gary and Margaret Eggins observed and photographed 600-800 Common Terns perched on powerlines straddling the Clarence River at Maclean, North Coast NSW. Not only was this a large flock and the use of powerlines very unusual but they were kilometres upriver from where I would have expected to see them.
